Outstanding Service Award 2005, Colorado Renewable Energy Society

During my leadership of CRES Colorado passed the nation’s first renewable energy portfolio standard by ballot initiative.


Dave did an impeccable job on the videos for the University of Colorado. He was extremely communicative throughout the entire process and provided helpful (needed!) advice for us novices. He was efficient during filming and able to adapt to each individual provider’s needs, easing them into the filming process. When you work with Dave, you’re working with a professional who doesn’t just do this for the compensation. He is truly invested in the projects he helps with and will work with you to ensure the final product is exactly what you want or need it to be. We highly recommend working with Dave for your video needs!

From start to finish, Dave provided a high-level of expertise in planning, shooting, adding graphics and audio, and editing the video. His years of video production experience were invaluable in adding professional touches that have received many compliments from viewers. He is a pleasure to work with. He listened, contributed great ideas, and then produced a final product that exceeded our requirements. We are very pleased with the production and look forward to working with Dave for our future video projects.
